The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    12:00 PM - Wednesday - Meeting Room

    Dr. Sean Munger discusses the history of climate change in the Pacific Northwest.

    How was climate change discovered? Who discovered it, when, and under what circumstances? The history of global warming goes back farther than you might think, and it involves people you might not have expected to find on the front lines of climate change—many of them connected to the Northwest. From Lewis and Clark squinting at antique thermometers to UW scientists drilling holes in Arctic ice, the Northwest and its people have been a crucial part of the story of climate change.

    Dr. Sean Munger is a historian, attorney and consultant specializing in the intersection of law and climate change. After practicing law in the Portland, Oregon area for many years, he returned to school to study environmental history, and later founded Centric Law, the consulting division of the Rose Law Firm of Lake Oswego, Oregon. He represents clients in the sustainability, renewable energy and climate change community. He also speaks and teaches on subjects involving history, climate change and the law.

    Sean is an internationally published historian, with a focus on the history of climate and climate change. He writes and produces a historical podcast, Second Decade, on the Recorded History Podcast Network, and he also teaches online history classes on a wide variety of subjects. While at the University of Oregon, Sean developed and taught an innovative course on the history of climate change. His work has been featured in academic and legal journals in the United States and Europe. He is also a novelist, having published in the horror and science fiction genres.

    Sean holds a Ph.D. in environmental history from the University of Oregon and a J.D. from Tulane Law School.

    6:00 PM - Thursday - Meeting Room

    Examine Stalin’s legacy and what we can learn from his brand of authoritarianism.

    This talk will trace how a young Georgian from a poor family who once studied at a seminary rose through the Bolshevik ranks to become the leader of the Soviet Union. It will examine Stalin’s role in collectivizing agriculture and industrializing the Soviet Union in the 1920s and 1930s, as well as his policies during and immediately after the Second World War. The talk will analyze how Cold War tensions developed between the Allies in the immediate postwar years, as well as investigate Stalin’s death and the ensuing process of de-Stalinizaton. In closing, Dr. Holzman will offer her thoughts on Stalin’s legacy in Russia today and what we can learn from his brand of authoritarianism.

    A native Oregonian, MayaLisa completed her doctorate in history at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2016. She is currently teaching U.S. History at OSU-Cascades.

    MayaLisa's teaching and research interests include the Second World War, Civil Rights and the Cold War, borderlands, gender, youth, propaganda, and U.S.- Russian/Soviet relations. Her research has been supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Institute of International Education, the Social Science Research Council, and the Council for European Studies.
